Can not find the eth0!

Postby wffger on Wed Jan 16, 2013 1:16 am

When I use command: ifconfig -a, it only displays the info of l0 and wanl0. I want to connect the internet in my campus, but I cannot find the device of eth0.

Please open a terminal and share the ouput of the following command. Hopefully this will tell us something about your ethernet chip, and somebody may be able to advice you on what drivers you need to install or similar.

It seems your Atheros AR8161 isn't directly supported by the Linux kernel. You are using Linux Mint 14, which is based on Ubuntu 12.10. You can use solutions for that also on Linux Mint. There are various topics I found, with varying solution.
